BLT Market for dinner?

Hi Chowhounds,

I just made a reservation at BLT Market for dinner tomorrow, celebrating my mom's 70th birthday. The menu looks there anyone who can speak to the quality and ambience for dinner there? I hope we've made a good choice...but it's not too late to jump ship. I've been disturbed by finding some really mixed reviews.

  1. I've only been once, and had no desire to return.
    It doesn't seem like a good place to celebrate a big birthday, unless she was born on a farm-they have a lot of old farm implements and irons and such lying about and on the walls. One of my dishes (fish) was served in an awkward cooking dish...the bread is served in a big paper bag...
    This wouldn't matter so much, if the food was very good...but I didn't find it so. Pretty mediocre, in my mind. And not cheap. That said, I haven't been back since this summer, so I don't have a current update.
    I have to say, you aren't far from Jean Georges, and you can probably still get a reservation if you are willing to eat early (and you aren't going to keep mom out that late, are you?)

    1. I'm not a fan either. If you search this forum, you'll find a lot of people who feel the same way. Do you need to stay in that area?
